All-Centennial Conference basketball

Four members of the playoff-bound Muhlenberg basketball teams earned All-Centennial Conference honors.

For the men, senior Spencer Liddic was voted to the first team and freshman Malique Killing to the second team. On the women’s team, senior Alexandra Chili made the first team and junior Alita Zabrecky the second team.

The first-team honor is the third straight for Liddic, who also received honorable mention as a freshman. A unanimous choice, he is the sixth player in CC history to earn first-team recognition three times.

Liddic (second from left, above) is the first Mule to be named to the All-CC team all four years. Two other Muhlenberg players received all-conference honors four times in the Middle Atlantic Conference, the most recent Glenn Salo (1973-76).

The leading rebounder in CC history, Liddic leads the CC in rebounding (11.2 per game) and is second in scoring (18.2 points per game) and third in field-goal percentage (.551).

Killing (left) is one of seven freshmen – the first from Muhlenberg – to be voted to the All-CC second team in the 19 years of the league’s existence. The 5-9 dynamo ranks in the CC top 10 in four categories: He is second in steals (1.92 per game), fifth in free-throw percentage (.804), sixth in scoring (17.1 points per game) and 10th in three-pointers made (1.36 per game).

Killing has set school records for points (427) and steals (48) by a freshman.

Like Liddic, Chili (second from right) also is a three-time first-team selection, the eighth in CC history. (One of the others is her former teammate, Lauren Boyle.) And like Liddic, she is a four-time All-CC honoree, having earned second-team laurels as a freshman.

Chili is the third Mule player to make the All-CC team all four years, and she also joins another former teammate (Kelly McKeon) in that category.

The CC all-time leader in three-pointers, Chili leads the CC in scoring (17.2 points per game) and three-pointers (70) and is second in three-point percentage (.412), seventh in assists (3.00 per game) and free-throw percentage (.794) and eighth in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.14).

Zabrecky moved up to the second team after earning honorable mention last year. She ranks in the CC top 10 in five categories: She is third in steals (2.32 per game), fifth in scoring (14.8 points per game) and three-point percentage (.344) and 10th in three-pointers made and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.12).

Zabrecky, who with 786 career points sits just outside the program’s all-time top 20, also leads the Mules in rebounding with 6.1 per game.
